Teen blogger digs luxury real estate

People in Real Estate: Cole Perkins

Cole Perkins pretty much gets it that he’s not exactly your average 13-year-old. For one thing, he’s totally uninterested in video games. And he attends "cyber school" — a home-schooling arrangement that tethers him to a classroom teacher via computer.

Then there’s that blogging thing. Where other kids might be blogging away about sports or television or popular music, that’s just too mainstream.

Cole Perkins blogs, instead, about luxury real estate.

He recently became something of a real estate keyword after Curbed.com posted an item about Lavish-Property.com, his fledgling site that each day features a new-to-the-market estate in North America or Europe, with extensive photography and his commentary.
